Ocean Shores ~ Sarah & Kasey’s wedding photographs

When Sarah and Kasey inquired about having us photograph their intimate wedding in Ocean Shores, on the beach in rain or shine, we jumped at the opportunity.  We were only with Sarah & Kasey for a couple of hours.  However, that didn’t stop us from making the most of our day at the beach.   I was tempted to bring our dog, Toby and then decided having him sit in the car, even with windows open would be cruel for our big boy.   We’ll just have to make it up to him and take him to the beach another weekend.

California Poppy

This afternoon as I was returning home I noticed the poppies in bloom in our front yard and decided I just HAD to take a photograph.  No particular reason, just because.  Hey I’m a photographer, it’s my prerogative!

This Old Truck


Yesterday as we were heading home from a portrait session, we saw this off the road at Spanaway Loop close to JBLM.  I HAD to turn around so we could get a photo of this old truck with a young tree that is growing out of the floor boards and through the window of this old truck.

Tacoma Engagement Session

We first met Candice & Jesse at the Wedding Walk Tacoma last February, where I was told she was able to find several of her wedding vendors in a fun and non stressful environment.

For their engagement session we met at Lake Wapato Park in Tacoma.  Sonny & I loved the connection or bond that Candice & Jesse have and we suspect they will have a long loving life together.


We look forward to photographing their wedding  February 2012 … which will be a few weeks before the next Wedding Walk Tacoma -- so mark your calendars so you can plan on attending, schedule looks like it will be on February 25th, 2012.

High Cedars Golf Course ~ Veronica & Justin’s wedding photographs

2011 has been filled with weddings that remind us why we love what we do, Veronica and Justin’s wedding was no exception.  They had beautiful weather for their April outdoor wedding ceremony at High Cedars Golf Course in Orting.


I loved how Veronica’s daughter helped with her mom’s dress and then earrings.  There was a lot of love for each other and I could see that she was truly happy that her mom was marrying Justin. =)


                                         “Do you want to take my picture?”  


They were inspired by all the hats at the royal wedding of William & Katherine.  I LOVED the hats they made the night before!


The young bridesmaid covered her eyes during the kiss!  Not looking, not looking, not looking!



               In honor of Veronica’s father.  His memory was very much alive at the event.


The clouds cleared, allowing us all to enjoy a spectacular view of Mt Rainier.  We stopped for a quick photo with the mountain and the evening colors.


We hope that Veronica & Justin had a great time in Hawaii!  For some reason they didn’t want a photographer for their honeymoon – I tried!

Venue:  High Cedars Golf Course
